with yesterday, only one person brought up hurricane sandy. a lot of attention was paid to michael bloomberg's endorsement. the big picture, do those kinds of things resinate? do they matter, do you think? >> i think on a text tual level, the message coming out of hurricane sandy was bipartisanship. even if they're not monitoring events as closely here as they are in the east, they're getting kind of a good feeling about the president's ability to work with people on the other side of the section. and as far as mike bloomberg goes, viewish voters are important in ohio and jewish business voters, they look at somebody like a mike bloomberg and that gives them more of a comfort level with president obama. >> i think that's true. they've been driving all around and watching some of the local campaigns, one of the things we'll hear president obama talk about today are gm's reaction to mitt romney and this ad that his campaign has been running. >> that's critical. >> it is critical. and local tv and local newspapers in this state, especially in the northern parts where president obama needs to do

and then hurricane sandy happened. talk about him. >> he is one of the most popular republican governors in the country but a lot of republicans nationally a little annoyed at him for embracing president obama in the wake of hurricane sandy and for not campaigning with mitt romney in that final week of the presidential campaign. a big thing to look at to see how healthy the republican party is whether they embrace chris christie's brand of center right, reformist type republicanism or whether they criticize him and say he is not conservative enough for the party. the republicans need to have a big tent to compete in future elections and chris christie is one of the rising stars. a test of how big the party's tent is will be how much they connect back with kris tie in the future. >> third on the to-do list, encourage steve king to stay in the house. he is a republican congressman from iowa and a tea party favorite. why urge him to stay in the house? >> he is a long time congressman from iowa but not -- in the senate race in the state is up in 2014 and he is thinking about running. the pro

. and hurricane sandy, a lot of people who i talked to as they were leaving this ballroom were suggesting that was the game changer for the president. having just been in ohio for five days and talking to a lot of folks there, obviously the auto bailout not only in ohio but in wisconsin and michigan keys here. but in the end, it was a night for mitt romney where he won only one of those hotly contented battleground states. >> chris, it was interesting to me the governor sent a message to his supporters that says accept this defeat. you know, this happened. and there has been a concern -- frankly i was concerned that whichever side lost might not feel as if they lost. they would be so stunned they wouldn't think it was fair and square. it does look like at least in that room and the supporters in boston that they know they lost fair and square. >> well, they do. and i think in the minutes after, we heard the statements from mitch mcconnell and this confusion for an hour and a half. the question was is this going to get nasty before it was truly over? i have to say one of the first things t
. consider $50 billion in damages now that we're looking at the superstorm sandy. how disgusting is that? i do like the fact that at the end of the day what motored the most is individual votes which overpowered the money spent. donors will on both sides have some frustration about the amount of money that was spent and was that effective? at a point, i don't think people cared about the television advertising. it was too much. and i think we have a real problem with money in politics. it's going to become part of the conversation going forward. maybe campaigns will look at how they spend the money in terms of ground game and other ways to reach voters instead of so much on advertising and negative advertising and sort of lying about things like welfare and the other kinds of things. but i certainly think we need to reign in the amount of money being spent. >> if television ads weren't effective, he wouldn't have outspent mitt romney. there are things that outside groups can do. we run a lot of ads. >> you guys think you lost this on television ads? you're in for a two two years, my friend.
